Valentine Parade

Happy Valentine's Day!
Here's a little parade of current and past projects.  See my "Be Mine" page for links to tutorials.
This is my current project which doubles for Valentine's Day and Quilt Shop Gal's February FMQ challenge.  (This tutorial is available from Julie, the Crafty Quilter on her blog)

Instead of hand embroidering, I FMQ the words on with a heavier red thread made for machine embroidery.


I was impatient to try "writing" with FMQ and winged it and didn't mark it first.  I'm so lucky that it turned out pretty good so I don't have to pick it all out!  I think in the future I will mark it though.



Hope you have a very nice day!  Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
